Latham & Watkins LLP's securities litigation and professional liability group had a successful year in 2018, having handled precedent-setting cases for a growing roster of blue-chip clients, which include Fortune 500 companies, financial institutions and large accounting firms. An example is its work for Apple in a securities class action in which the plaintiffs allege that the company is liable as a 'control person' for allegedly false and misleading statements made by one of its third-party suppliers. Miles Ruthberg and up-and-coming partner Jason Hegt in New York, along with Matthew Rawlinson in Silicon Valley, were the lead lawyers in that case. Rawlinson, Jeff Hammel in New York and Andrew Clubok in Washington DC lead the practice. Veteran litigator James Brandt in New York and Robert Perrin in Los Angeles are representing PG&E in class actions arising from the wildfires in northern California in 2017. The firm's work in the life sciences sector includes defending a class action for biopharmaceuticals company Aratana Therapeutics, in which New York partners Kevin McDonough and Jamie Wine secured a dismissal with prejudice.
